Is aolbrowsertab.exe safe or is this malware?

Purpose of aolbrowsertab.exe:

aolbrowsertab.exe file purpose and description:

AolBrowserTab.exe is a program that was most likely installed by you. The correct folder location is shown below for this executable file, always verify the file location as virus writers sometimes use the same or similiar program names and place them in other locations in an attempt to fool you. This AolBrowserTab.exe program is part of the AOL client software which beginning with Windows 10 uses Windows Edge browser as part of the AOL internal client browser. I have noticed these also stay open at times in my tasklist even when I close the AOL client, and in that case you can terminate the aolbrowsertab.exe entries in your tasklist after AOL is closed if you see these. This file is considered safe and is not virus or malware related software. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)

General information:
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes. You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows "task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files on your computer, for example, aolbrowsertab.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned. You can always find the location of aolbrowsertab.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location.
